The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Bayelsa state is currently in a state of quagmire, following the aftermath of the just concluded ward congresses of the party.
This has prompted a governorship aspirant of the party, Timi Alaibe, to write to the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) expressing displeasure.
It was reported that controversy marred the the conduct of the congresses across the state – which is very vital ahead of the governorship poll.
According to Alaibe, some names were seen on the lists of delegates for the purpose of favouring some aspirants, especially those loyal to the current government.

“They have failed this time around because no degree of intrigues, no amount of manipulation and propaganda can push me out of this race.
“Nothing will change my decision to lift the lot of our people through purposeful leadership. I am here to stay and together we will win.”
